So what Wind would everyone like today? How about another healthy dose of NE
Yup we get slammed again today
Conditions are basically very crappy and looks to remain that way all day

We are into neaps


High 7:09AM
Low 1:13PM
High 7:15PM

Holy Crap we actually get a break from the Devil Wind on Thursday
It finally calms down and will hopefully be a more pleasant day for a splish splash
Maybe a small shore on the pushing tide or even a few lumps and bumps and the tide drains later


High 8:16AM
Low 2:31PM

Finally a southerly on Friday morning.
Expect mixed conditions as it swings light onshore later
Not worth chasing tar for a better wave anywhere
Look out front for a scratch

We have a nice four foot swell on the sets which breaks out back into a gutter. Looks ok until you get out there
The rest of the sand is al on the beach. So it’s a scratch
Light onshore for the day. It could improve on the draining tide so keep an eye on it

It looks like the onshore may ruffle matters up for anything on Saturday morning
Early high is a nobber. Only hope is for a shorey but even that is 50/50
Devil wind tightens the screws around mid morning and pastes us all day


High 4:50AM
Low 10:52AM

Bit of a confusion of winds on Sunday with both a southerly early swinging to onshore later
We don’t really want the southerly. We need the east angle to stay for any hope of a decent shorey
It’s a scratch once again

The winds this week area going to tear us a new one for sure

The North Easterly is already up early whistling through my window and is going to pepper us properly today
Try a shorey later but expect to blown off the beach. I think even the kiters may sit this one out

It continues into Tuesday morning
There is a massive blood clot moving past the tip of CT
This pushes up the coast and we get the tip end of it Tuesday evening
It may even swing right past
It’s a lookout for a shorey once again for the day


High 6:54AM 5.31ft
Low 1:01PM 2.1ft

Leftover southerly through to Wednesday which slows down around midday then moderate SE later in the arvo

It manky and poo this morning with many chasing tar looking for a session
Looks a its going to be a nice day with the onshore that is due to stay light
This is because of the fat aunty is cruising up from the south. Try get in a scratch as the tide settles in
Picture the southerly as one of those big germany tannies that carry 20 jugs of beer in each arm. Look at her funny and she will give one snot klap
Well that’s exactly what we can expect early to late evening
One fat southerly serving so hold onto your panties


Low 6:37AM

Southerly continues to put us over her one chubby knee and spank us all day Saturday

Big frothy conditions at the points and open faced beaches

Not much on the go with early an pushing neap high tide and a leftover southerly wobble
Could be something down south as the tide drains
3-4ft with a moderate southerly due all day and seems to get a chubby in the swell period to around 15secs


Low 2:15AM
High 9:00AM
Low 3:30PM
High 9:57PM


Looks like a slight bump in swell size and period on Thursday
5ft at 13secs with an early but light southerly in out
Best take a look on the dawnie before too much tide gets into
Wind swing gradually to onshore later in the arvo
May be a slight chance of a second session as it drains but that’s a “maybe”


Low 4:57AM
High 11:58AM
Low 6:26PM

No good news for Friday as an early onshore swings in for the day
An early low is upon as we move out of neaps.
It’s a 50/50 call for anything worth riding as the NE is due to pick up during the day
Kiters are having their early morning shake however this may be short lived as we have a monster southerly moving up the coast



Low 6:37AM
High 1:02PM
